Orion TT

Fly among the stars, fight invading aliens, rescue science!

This is a port of Space Cruiser Orion to the Linux console, using BaCon, the Basic Converter. See the original homepage for more details.

This edition was announced in mid-October 2019, and released three weeks later. It hasn't been revised since.


Like the original, this game comes with source code and a player's guide in the package, and it's open source under the MIT License (also included).
